Photography Assignment

Our Daily Challenge - Mar 9 2015 - "Isolated"

Daily Dog Challenge 1224. "Singular"

Where's Henry?

I made a tactical error tonight.

I shot all Henry's pictures with him lying down and looking up, as I was convinced that is what would look best since the pose would extend his neck and show off the collar.

The images looked fine through the camera's LCD so I quickly moved on to Zachary.

Just to be different, I decided to shoot all of Zachary's with him standing.

I've always loved his "head down" look, and thought this collar would compliment that.

Alas, Henry's ruff while sitting down overpowered the collar, which managed to be both hidden by his royal fluff AND quite visible on his shoulders making him look rather dumpy.


Live and learn.

Today's your day to shine, Zachary!

Mr. Zachary
"Cookie please."

Editor's Note: This "collar", being nothing more than a yard of upholstery trim looped over itself in the front, is a royal pain to work with. Not only does the "looped over" have a way of unlooping at the most inopportune moments, but the ends spontaneously unravel, hence the piece of tape the lady put there before cutting, which I stupidly removed upon arriving home and then quickly replaced once I saw the wisdom of the placement.

That said, that tape looks hideous in the pictures and the good ol' clone tool must once again come to the rescue.

"Tick tick tick", says the clock as I tediously try to match the pattern of the ribbon covered by the tape with some other bit of ribbon in the picture.

Top of this weekend's To Do list is come up with an invisible way to keep that darn ribbon from unraveling!
